Nail Fungus Treatment Options Available Now in North York
Nail fungus can be an embarrassing problem. Even worse, if left untreated nail fungus can develop into a condition known as onychomycosis. This is when the nail separates from the nail bed, resulting in pain and a foul odor. Even mild cases may cause you to feel uncomfortable revealing your feet or hands. Embarrassment about the condition of the nails may hold you back from doing some activities you love. You might miss out on swimming, going to the beach, or participating in certain sports because of your nails.
Thankfully, there are treatment options. Treating the nail bed with deep heat from a laser is a suitable treatment for both men and women of all skin types. Learn more about this safe, effective treatment option. Book a free consultation with Distill Laser Clinic team online today.
Signs of Nail Fungus & What You Can Do
You may be suffering from nail fungus issues if your nails are:
- Brittle or crumbly
- Break off easily
- Dull in appearance
- Dark in color
- Have white spots or yellow streaks
While there are oral medications that can help kill the fungus in your nail beds, it's a treatment that's not suitable for all patients. Some patients who are older or suffer from liver conditions may not be able to take anti-fungal oral medications. The medication isn't always effective, either, leaving patients looking for other treatment options.
Laser treatment for nail fungus may be the better option. It's a safe, effective option with few or no side effects for most patients. Laser treatments can help your body start to grow clear, healthy nails again. Treatments only take about 30 minutes, with full results seen in six to 12 months' time. Starting the treatment now will help healthy nail growth begin right away. Book an appointment with our nail fungus treatment team today.
How Distill Uses Laser-Based Treatments to Clear Nail Fungus
Distill Laser Clinic in North York uses a Gentlemax Pro laser. This nail fungus treatment laser uses an Nd: YAG 1064-nm laser to deeply penetrate the nail bed. The laser won't damage the surrounding healthy tissue. Being able to get below the surface of the nail with the heat energy is what allows the laser to temporarily stop the fungus growing there.
To maintain clear nail results, most patients will need at least four treatments with the laser. We also recommend the treatment of all nails even if the fungus is only presenting in one or two. You can book an appointment with our North York clinic today to learn more.
